Which ocean has the most shipwrecks?

Shipwreck

A Shipwreck is a game-generated, crumbled wooden ship that contains chests with treasures.

Occurrence [edit]

Shipwrecks are generated in all oceans and deep seas, and are rarely found on the beach.

A shipwreck can be found by a dolphin if you feed it raw cod and then follow its path.

Shipwrecks can also be found by command.

Structure [edit]

There are different types of wrecks:

  • Only the bow, only the stern, ship without masts, ship with masts
  • Upright, tilted to one side, upside down
  • Different material combinations
  • Each type of wreck may have more blocks missing (dilapidated version)
  • There can be 1 to 3 chests

The table of material combinations and pictures of all types of wrecks can be found in the article on the construction templates.

Shipwrecks, some of which are generated underground, are filled with soil (earth, stone, sand, etc.). So to get to the chests, they have to be dug up.

Chest contents [edit]

A complete wreck has three chests: a supply chest in the bow hold, a treasure chest in the cabin and a map chest in the stern hold. If only part of the wreck has been generated, the corresponding chests of the other part are missing.

Storage chest [edit]

The storage chest is located in the bow hold.
